Business mentoring is a free, supportive relationship based on trust and mutual respect. In this privileged and confidential relationship, a person of experience (the mentor) wants to share his expertise in entrepreneurship and volunteer support to a less experienced person (the mentee) to transfer his knowledge and skills. In short, business mentoring aims to make the mentee more competent, faster, and at a lower cost.
Statistics reveal that this service is very beneficial both in the start-up phase, expansion or transfer of a company. The presence of a mentor allows 73% of companies to pass the 5-year mark, whereas this rate usually is 34%.
